When fresh corn on the cob is available, this recipe for a classic shrimp boil is a summertime must! Loaded with shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes, this is a fun meal to share with family and friends!
Fill a large pot with 4 quarts of water. Season the water with 2 tablespoons salt. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat.
Add the potatoes. Let the potatoes cook until fork tender about 15 - 20 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the water to a sheet pan.
Add the corn on the cob to the water and continue to boil the corn for 3-5 minutes.
Next add the sausage to the water and cook 4 minutes longer. OR brown the sausage slices in a skillet...you decide for the sausage. Move both cooked corn and sausage to the sheet pan.
Gently stir in the shrimp and cook until pink, about 1 - 2 minutes. Move the shrimp out of the water to the sheet pan.
Drizzle all with butter and lemon juice. Sprinkle with the Old Bay seasoning and fresh cracked pepper to taste. Finish with the chopped Flat Leaf parsley or chopped cilantro. Serve warm.
